Rick Bernhardt is a town planner who strives to preserve, create, and enhance community character. Sustainable communities, neighborhoods, and places rely on community input, context-based land use decisions, and traditional neighborhood design principles. Planning policies serve to enhance sense-of-place and quality of life by building upon the character of the community versus standard land use and density based policies.
